History of Australian Immigration

Following the World War II, the Australian Government was committed to boosting the nation’s population under the slogan – “Populate or Perish”. Policies were devised and implemented with the agendas of stimulating post-war economic development and defending the country in the event of another war. ​Despite the Government’s original intention for the 1% annual growth via immigration, the number of immigrants had grown exponentially. As a result, 30% of Australia’s resident population was born overseas, making it one of the world’s most multicultural nations. Australia’s immigration program has been governed by the Migration Act of 1958 which established the Australian visa system with the long title – “An Act relating to the entry into, and presence in Australia of aliens, and the departure or deportation from Australia of aliens and certain other persons.” This Act replaced the Immigration Restriction Act 1901 which had formed the basis of the archaic ‘White Australia policy’ and many other discriminatory practices. The Migration Act 1958 Act has been amended numerous times over the past 60 years, with each presiding Government seeking to impose its own migration policies. ​This has resulted in a unique mixture of drafting styles and policy objectives, producing the current Australian immigration landscape we see today. As long as Australia remains a popular destination for migrants from around the world, the Department, Tribunal and Courts will be called upon to interpret the various provisions in the realm of Australian immigration law. It is crucial that your immigration consultants understand the past and current laws that are relevant to your prospective visa application.

As a prima facie requirement, you must establish with evidence a well founded fear of being persecuted should you be returned to your home country. An application without a reasonable argument may amount to a fraudulent claim and an agent or a lawyer who provides immigration assistance with the claim would be in professional breaches. If you want to remain in Australia, you need to find a relevant visa and a humanitarian visa would be highly unlikely be your option.
